Daniel Negreanu Biography & Poker Career

Daniel Negreanu is one of the most accomplished poker players in history – with an enviable poker resume spanning decades. He plays all the games (not just Hold’em!) at the very top level and stakes, and has the results and work ethic to be regarded as one of the top poker minds and players on earth.

The Canadian known as “Kid Poker” dropped out of high school just one credit short of graduation, and began his life as a rounder playing at the local charity casinos and looking for illegal games around the city. At 21 after building up his bankroll, he left for Las Vegas, however “The Strip” got the better of him and he was forced to move back home to Toronto to rebuild his bankroll.

In 1997 when Daniel won two events at the World Poker Finals earning himself $133,600 as well as being named the tournament’s best all-around player. He backed up his efforts in the 1998 WSOP by winning $169,460 at the $2,000 Pot Limit Hold’em event and becoming the youngest WSOP bracelet winner in history — a record he held until 2004.

Over the next few years, he became one of the most successful poker tournament players in history, winning two WPT events, another two WSOP bracelets, and appearing at 11 final tables.

Upon opening, the WYNN Las Vegas resort recruited him as their “Poker Ambassador” to play for any stake in their poker room. The arrangement lasted until October 2005 when he opted out because it was restricting his ability to play for high stakes outside the Wynn.

Daniel is known for his ability to “read” other players, gathering information about his opponent’s hand by studying their betting patterns and physical expressions.

Daniel was named “Favorite Poker Player” at the Card Player, Player of the Year Awards Gala in February 2006.

In his own words:

“At the highest levels everyone has a decent understanding of the math. Feel, or psychological warfare is what it’s all about. I honestly don’t think that a pure math guy has much of a chance in those games because they aren’t psychologically prepared for the game.”

“I miss the beer man, I miss the beer. Being in Las Vegas I have to settle for Heineken or Corona. I just can’t drink American beer it tastes too much like urine”

Daniel is a poker ambassador for top online poker site GGPoker (which we have rated a perfect 5/5)
